Here at the Carnegie Library, we do things. You ought to check some of them out.

We know it has been super beautiful outside, and school is nearly over, and people are graduating and working on final projects and musicals and tests. Everyone is pretty busy and distracted and excited. We know that. However, the Teen staff here at the library has been pretty busy, too. We’re making plans and working on awesome programs for this summer and getting ready for Teen Summer Reading which kicks off on June 10th.

Awesome Awesomeness coming up at the library:

Saturday, June 30th Books on Bikes - A bicycle ride in which teens will raise money to provide books for local organizations serving teens in need. In addition, participating teens will visit libraries across Pittsburgh’s East End to raise awareness of the importance of books and information for teens in all of Pittsburgh’s neighborhoods. For more information contact Joseph or Patrick at (412) 622-3121

Friday, July 20th Harry Potter Anticipation Party – Get ready for the last Harry Potter book and the new movie with themed games, trivia, music, and fellow Harry Potter maniacs!

Sometime in July we would like to have a Guitar Hero Tournament. It will probably be a day-long rock-fest with snacks and prizes. We’re working on all of the details. Any interest? Contact Teens at (412) 622-3121.

And we also have all of our on-going weekly programs:
Monday YouTube Swap 3:00 – share funny, gross, crazy, wacky, awesome clips and we’ll project them on a big screen.
Wednesday Teen Art Club 3:00 – Make cool things. No talent required, only willingness to hang out and be creative.
Thursday and Friday 3:00 – Gaming! We have a Wii and a Playstation 2 and an Xbox and we’ll let you play games on them!

Hi, I just found your blog. My sister's kids are NUTSO about Harry Potter and anytime there's any cool things to do with that topic in mind my sis has got to bring them. Where will the Harry Potter deal happen? Vern
